New 7s coach
31 October, 2016, 12:00 am
By a very strange twist of fate, Fiji, a rugby-crazy nation, is respectfully expected to accept the appointment of our newly-appointed national 7s coach in tier two Hong Kong 7s Gareth Baber (not Barber as officially announced by FRU over TV news 6pm Friday, October 28).
Public perception is a powerful measure.
Admittedly, and with every tact and diplomacy, without any malice team Hong Kong has never ever been a 7s rugby force to reckon with.
Team Hong Kong, so far, has never ever been a reasonable threat to rugby 7s tier one nations.
The Fiji public at large is now informed, without doubt, that our new 7s coach, on paper, has admirable credentials to take Fiji 7s forward and hope to emulate Tu Rai’s (Ben Ryan) proud, colourful and distinguished achievements which are today common knowledge to the entire rugby 7s world.
We can only hope, pray and support Gareth Baber in his new appointment.
Here’s wishing Gareth Baber and our national 7s team every success as you prepare to meet the challenges that await us all.
Go Fiji go! Toso Viti toso!
